I am Pinky, Blumen Rajan's sister. You might have read about him recently in the newspapers.
He is an exceptionally gifted track athlete, a state record holder, a University gold medalist and a national level silver medalist in the 400m sprint. Blumen had always been one to push his physical limits.
In December 2014, he was diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML), a type of blood cancer. CML is a treatable condition, where the first level of treatment is oral chemotherapy, followed by the usual induction chemo. However, the most-effective proven treatment is stem cell transplant.
Blumen has now been advised to undergo a stem cell transplant as his only hope. The cost of the Bone Marrow Transplant is 40 lakhs.
Now we have no time. So need funds to start treatment with the best match available. The BMT will happen in Tata Medical Center, Kolkata under the supervision of Dr.Mammen Chandy.
We need to leave for Kolkata by Monday (August 21) to have best shot at this treatment. Your are our only hope. Any contribution small or big will help us immensely. Please contribute to save my brother, Blumen.
